Fun to get some of the history of the dairy farm as well as the background of the branding ... They had unlimited samples of 8 different iced teas and 10 different flavors of ice cream! Also everyone could pretend to make a commercial and a label for the ice cream they "created" Restrooms were clean and very family friendly

If you are looking for an added treat while in the Lancaster area then I would highly recommend the Turkey Hill Experience. I know it is not the healthiest food for me but I am an avid ice cream lover. Living in southern NJ I have been a fan of Breyers Ice Cream and Turkey Hill Ice Cream since I... More

My 7 and 9 year olds found our trip to be fun. They learned a lot in a fun way. We took part in the ice cream making class. Was a lot of fun. They have done a nice job on bringing farming to the table. Helping children to know how their yummy treat gets to the grocery store. Well... More

Easy to find, right off the highway, our family of 5 loved the free samples of ice cream and tea & experiencing how ice cream is made! From milking the cows, to the freezers, and even making your own commercial, this old factory turned museum is a cool place to visit if you're just passing through the area! The layout... More

After having difficulty in finding a parking spot my second impression was that my military ID allowed me free admission. This attraction shows the history of turkey hill through exhibits and interactive activities. It offers complimentary tastings of Turkey Hill tea products and ice cream. The ice cream sample is quite generous however there is a long slow line to... More

Neat place. Tons of background info and interactive experiences for the kids. Also did the "make your own flavor" experience for a few extra bucks. Was a little in the crowded side but not enough to have a negative impact. Has all you can eat samples.....plus the make your own....we were full by the time we left.

My family of 6 all enjoyed visiting here. There are lots of neat exhibits for all ages. The best part is they give free ice cream samples, all you can eat! My kids loved that! The highlight though is definitely the make your own ice cream creation. We all had fun doing that, you can get pretty creative! It was... More

It was very crowded and was a bit difficult to see everything, although the kids in our group ( ages 4-10) loved it. We attended the ice cream lab where each person concocted their own pint of ice cream. Shawn did a great job with the group in the lab. Our family totally enjoyed their time here.

Very disappointed. $28 dollars for 2 seniors and a 12 year old. Boring.... Little explanation of what to expect, long lines for relatively dull exhibits. Ladies passing out ice cream were terrific and fun.

The Turkey Hill Experience takes great pride in our history and has worked hard to come up with unique exhibits to explain our history and the ice cream making process. The next time you are in the area I would be more than happy to give you a tour or talk to you more in depth about your experience and... More
